Chickpeas and Spinach Soup

Chickpeas and Spinach Soup

This is a very easy recipe, equally irresistible for children, as it will be for your husband. It’s perfect for a cold October day, and very economical. It will only cost you about 4 EURO to serve 6 people. I used Baktat Kichererbsen, ORO di Parma Tomaten, and fresh spinach. In the winter, you can also use frozen Blattspinat from Eismann – just 200 grams.

Ingredients

step 3

  • 1 can tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • water or broth

step 1

  • drizzle extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Large onion (chopped)
  • 8 cloves garlic (chopped)

step 4

  • juice from half a lime
  • pinch salt
  • pinch pepper (freshly ground)

step 2

  • spices to taste (ginger, cayenne pepper powder, cumin, sweet paprika)

step 5

  • 5oz fresh baby spinach
  • 1 bunch fresh coriander (chopped)

Directions

Step 1
In a deep pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat, then add onion and garlic and saute until the onions begin to turn translucent, stirring to prevent browning.
Step 2
Reduce heat and add spices (ginger, cayenne pepper powder, cumin, sweet paprika); allow to saute a minute or so.
Step 3
Add chickpeas and tomatoes, then cover with water or broth, and let simmer at medium heat for about 10 minutes.
Step 4
Season with salt, pepper and lime juice to taste. Let simmer one more minute.
Step 5
Add spinach, and let heat a minute or so, until wilted. Add chopped coriander and plate the dish.

Note

This is inspired by a Dave Lieberman recipe, but the spices are modified, as it is the boiling time. To me, it makes no sense to boil canned chickpeas for 45 minutes. Canned chickpeas in the US could be different. In Europe, they are already boiled.
